I have a question regarding MST BPDUs and how switches with spanning tree disabled treat them? Here is the rough scenario
mst root(6509)--------------mst sec(6509)
6509(spantree disabled)-------6509(spantree disabled)
BPDUs from the MST switches are making to the access 6509s (with spantree disabled) then disapearing. Now I think the switches with Spanning tree disabled should just forward the BPDUs transparently but, I obviously could be wrong here.
So the Question is do cisco switches with spanning tree disabled forward BPDUs or are they discarded by default?
(the four switches are connected in a "square" fashion)
